Honestly, not too surprised by this.
As a new(er) member of this board, I certainly don't want to indulge in an OLEDvLCD war; but what made me go from Plasma to OLED were the true blacks. I don't care what the peak brightness is on any of the high-end, new Samsung models. And I don't care what sets have the full-array local dimming, it's still not going to hit true black, and you're still going to have moments of edge lighting and logo/font blooming--and you're still not going to produce an image as that's as rich and has as much depth as an OLED.
SIDE NOTE: in relation to the motion issues I've seen people talk about in regard to LG's OLEDs: I don't think it's as bad as what people claim it is. Judder, to me, isn't that big of a deal. And with real cinema turned on for all film based content, I hardly, if ever, notice it.
But let's talk about how the motion on this panel is actually a strength. To me, this is the perfect set for gaming (if you're a console gamer, anyway)--and my complaint about the "wide colour gamut" being locked notwithstanding, the way it handles motion, especially from games like MGSV, The Last of Us Remastered, virtually all sports games, and several others like Battlefield 1, DOOM, Titanfall 2, etc, etc. that can run at 60FPS, is absolutely spectacular. There is virtually zero motion blur. It handles motion better for these games even better than any high-end Samsung or Panasonic plasma that I had before I upgraded to the B6.
So, to me, the OLED's instant processing time, can actually be used as a strength in many ways. It's definitely the perfect gaming monitor, especially since the input lag is noticeably lower since the launch of the B6.
